Extremely low-permeating and temperature-resistan
t diaphragms used in Wiggins gas holders.
Gas holder diaphragms are used in Wiggins gas holders in steel plants for the temporary storage of converter and blast furnace gas.
With a thickness of 2.2 mm, the diaphragms are extremely low-permeating and resistant to temperatures ranging from -40°C to +80°C
Multi-axial polyamide layer is used as reinforcing material, delivering great flexibility and high strength
More than 200,000 strokes, service life of over 10 years
A reciprocating piston moves up and down in the gas holder, adjusting the stored volume to the fill volume and keeping the gas at working pressure.
In all states of movement, ContiTech's diaphragm maintains a tight seal between the gas-holder wall and the piston.
